In many ways, the Jurassic Park franchise is modern cinema’s Jaws series, especially considering the first film in both properties was directed by a Steven Spielberg with something to prove. They both go from being one game-changing movie to a series full of lackluster sequels that never truly live up to the potential of the original. However, unlike Jaws, it seems Jurassic Park is poised for a comeback, and it starts with the release of Jurassic World – earth’s first chance to revisit the famed island where dinosaurs roam free.
However, since production began, there’s been little by way of footage for the new Colin Trevorrow-directed film. Of course, we always knew that would change soon as the film’s currently set for a summer 2015 release date, and change it will as the first trailer’s set to premiere this Thursday on NBC… but do we really think Universal would waste a great opportunity to build some buzz before then? Of course not, and that’s where today’s post comes into play as we have our first look at a teaser for the teaser. Check it out:
It’s not a lot to go one, which isn’t surprising as this is a teaser for a teaser, but from what we do see, we can say we like what’s being brought to the table. This first bit of footage really feels like it’s channeling the Spielberg of the first film while still making itself stand on its own two feet. Whether or not it’s got any T-Rex teeth remains to be seen, however.
The full trailer is set to air during football on Thursday, which is Thanksgiving Day, you know.
